I woke up to an extra special delivery! Mix 1 sent me a case of smoothies to try! I had tried these before at the Denver Marathon, and really liked them – so I am very excited to try all the different varieties. This company is local (Boulder, CO) and has some pretty good stats: … Continue reading

Veggie Day

After my veggieless day, yesterday, I honestly woke up craving green. Quick Fix – a green monster with ½ a banana, 1 scoop protein powder, a lot of spinach, water, almond milk. Very filling, very yummy. Lunch looked less-than appetizing, but it actually hit the spot. First up was broccoli slaw with hummus and balsamic … Continue reading

Finally, some cake.

Let’s hear it for Thursday. It’s my favorite day of the week because the weekend is just around the corner. Everyone is anticipating Friday, and the day just seems so manageable. Especially when you start it off with a breakfast like this. Savory Oats – ½ cup oats, cheddar cheese, salsa, hummus, siracha, an egg. … Continue reading

Applesauce and Red Pens

This morning, after a nice walk with the Punk, I had a very satisfying breakfast. Oats in a very empty almond butter jar. I’m not even sure there was any almond butter in there – I cleaned that sucker out pretty well with a spoon earlier this week. These oats were pure mush. I cooked … Continue reading

In words…workout, green monster, vitatop, leftovers, apple, orange, sunbutter, protein brownie batter, applesauce package, turkey/sweet potato soup. Also, my classroom smelled like a fart all day long, and I caught a little boy picking up … Continue reading

Lesson Learned

I guess all of those early morning spin classes caught up with me today. Not only was I exhausted, but I was the hungriest I have been in a long time. (By the way, spinning was awesome again this morning – hardest class yet. Plus, we watched a Warren Miller film, which reminded me of … Continue reading

Afternoon at the drive-in…

Third, and last, day of the week for Mrs. Unger. Actually, I do have to be at work tomorrow, but the kiddos don’t – so it’s pretty much a day off. Before spin class this morning, I had a little combo that I’ve become quite fond of. Then, after a killer workout (I LOVE SPINNING!!) … Continue reading
